Eating Out in Edinburgh + Glasgow, Scotland, UK – Buildings + Architects

Restaurants Scotland

These guides list respected architect-designed restaurants

These Scottish restaurants are mostly contemporary. The key classics, such as The Balmoral Hotel, Edinburgh & Fishers Restaurant, Leith, are inserted to give depth. They are reviewed for surroundings, food & service.

Edinburgh Restaurants

In terms of architecture Oloroso by Richard Muphy Architects was one of the major designs of the last few decades. Sadly now the eastablishment has changed hands. So our recommendation changes to these two high end restaurants designed in a clean contemporary way: The Tower at the Museum of Scotland, and the Forth Floor at Harvey Nichols. Both of these, like Oloroso, have rooftop terraces and great views from within the dining space out over the rooftops.

Glasgow Restaurants

In Glasgow contemporary architectural settings for eating out range from the Radisson Blu Hotel to the CCA. If you like seafood then Rogano (1930s) is a classic venue to consider. For Italian we suggest Sarti’s, they have three restaurants in Glasgow and from many visits we find them reliable and a safe choice.

“Despite the forty minute wait for our starters we really enjoyed the experience, good design, good food and a great view. Service could have been slightly more attentive”
